Re: LED headlight bulbs

I am also looking at LED headlights. But not sure on the quality of beam down the road

I've installed LED fog lights but that's more to be seen and will be installing LED auxiliary lights shortly.

For the rear I'm looking at superbright LED bulbs. They look the same as cyclemax.

Waseuon Ohio Antique Motorcycle Swap Meet

Anyone going to the swap meet this weekend? July 20th weekend? I'll be there on Saturday. We're getting into napolean on Thursday afternoon. I'm riding along lake Erie and to cyclemax on Friday. Swap meet in Saturday. A good friend of mine sells antique vintage decals for Harley. I'm helping him out...

Re: Regular or Premium

I mostly use 87 with and occasional 87-89 Efree. I also am starting to use with every other fuel fill up is the stable marine fuel additive. I used it before on my 1500. Started using it again. I have also used in the past is seafoam and I was very happy with that.

Re: Jerky shift fix

This is an old post but may still be relevant today. I have a 07 that has a surge problem at idle when the bike is warm. A buddy has an 08 with a stumble problem when taking off from a stop when the bike is warm.

Have other guys used this and your thoughts on it.

Re: Progressive suspension upgrades

You may also be able to tell if you have a friends 1800 with known change or not by the ride height. A stock ride height will most likely ride low in the suspension.

I do realize this post is almost a year old however I have a question? I just got a New 2me 2008 Navi ABS with 35,000 miles... How can I check to find if any upgrades have been done to the suspension?
You'll have to take the front springs out to tell. And change the oil while your at it.

Re: Air filter inspection

And remember when you are in there to change the filter, put a screen over the inlet of the air ducts to prevent any critters entering into the filter and making a home.

Re: FOBO Tire monitoring

I use the tiregard from cyclemax. Its larger then the fob style so I can read it easier and I didn't want the fobo because of the phone app use.

I need to do this also. It's not hard just time consuming. The adjuster is under the top shelter, under the radio.

I recently bought my first 1800 and the relays are different but cheaper. Cyclemax sells them and I recently bought one of the cheapest ones for now.

Re: Trimming a windscreen

Well, I mark a height that looks good to me and mark it with a permanent marker. Trial and error the height and radius on the corners. Tape it off and protect from scratches. I take mine off and cut with a band saw. Sand and debur. Test ride and try again if needed. Start taller than you would think...

Re: Shipping Gl1800

A couple of years a buddy of mine had his bike shipped from Texas to Iowa, the dealer used a shipper that they use. It was an enclosed trailer. Dealer usually should help you with the move.
